Mihret’s great adventure with Sparkles the Fish

Mihret’s Kindergarten class has a pet fish. Her name is Sparkles. Each weekend, a different classmate gets to bring Sparkles home and record the adventures she has in a traveling notebook. Sparkles came home with Mihret on Friday.

Aiden and Alyson were away at a church retreat for middle and high school students. So we had already planned a post-birthday birthday day for Mihret on Saturday. Sparkles joined in the festivities. Here’s a few highlights from our day.

First stop: Qdoba for some tacos, burritos, and a quesadilla – PLUSĀ some free chips and queso thanks to my Qdoba rewards card. Sparkles decided to dive into the tacos. Probably a good thing they weren’t fish tacos. That would be a bit awkward.

Then we went shoe shopping. Mihret wanted to try on some sparkly shoes. So did Sparkles.

Sparkles looked a little bit homesick. So we stopped by Yankee Candles and let her get a few sniffs of the ocean…

Then we played at Incredible Pizza Company for about an hour. It was pretty dark, so I wasn’t able to take any pictures. Let’s just say that Mihret rode a lot of car rides. We had a blast.

We topped off the day by trying out Red Line Frozen Yogurt. The flavors were fantastic. And sitting in a replica of a Chicago subway car while eating our dessert made it even more fun! Of course, Sparkles had to sample everyone’s sundae creations.Worn out from a long day

The ride home was pretty quiet. I wonder why…

      Can’t go wrong with Mihret photos! ;) We definitely had fun.

      I have to admit, I’m kind of sad that Sparkles has to go back to school today.
